Alabama Beach Mouse
Information on the Alabama Beach Mouse
Coastal development, including residential, commercial, and roadway construction, has fragmented and destroyed habitat used by this species. Hurricanes and tropical storms have also damaged or destroyed sand dunes and related habitats, and dune use by pedestrians has further degraded the habitat. Stalking by domestic and feral cats as well as other animals plus competition from other rodents have contributed to Alabama beach mouse declines and losses. Exotic vegetation also poses a threat to the Alabama Beach Mouse.
